Dani give so many amazing pieces of advice for anyone who is working, or wanting to get back into the work force and what that looks like being able to be present as a Mum and have a career…


KEY TAKEAWAYS


· Put yourself out there and put your hand up for opportunities - I always say, ‘You’ve got to be in it to win it!’

· Focus on your results and outputs, not on being like everyone else.

· Be proud of your difference and don’t try to hide it. If you’re not working for an employer who embraces that difference then you’re not working at the right place.

· If you’re thinking about children but think it might interfere with job opportunities, just know that if you’ve had an opportunity once, it will come around again.

· For mums, find a support network both in and out of work. What you’re going through, lots of other people are experiencing as well.

· If individuals are achieving the output required for their role, flexible work hours can go a long way
